    Repaint/touch up of my Rubies Lid

    I decided I'd 'touch' up my paint job on my Rubies helmet since I wasn't happy with the way the colors ended up. Primarily my green dome and cheeks were too light, so I thought I'd use that as a reason to give it all a once over.

    Here's where I started ...........



    And here's where I ended up .... I like the colors much better.










    Cheers !!

    Very nice boba! I wen for a jango as the paint scheme on the boba looked way too involved!
    LOL


    Im curious in the eyes of the 501st how does the rubies stack up? Is it accepted with a new paint job? or do they say no on the rubies? Im just trying to find out what acceptable or not as Im a 501st vader, and know how finicky they are on vader. Ive heard the requirements on Fett's are even stricter.

    Rubies are fine for the 501st ... I got my Fett in early last year. Can't say for sure but I would think a paint job (and likely a visor replacement) would be a must as a minimum.

    Man that is a great Rubies helmet. Was it a Jango or a Boba in its previous incarnation?

    Here are a few new outside pics with better lighting. Sure makes a difference in the colors.

    looks great. Is that RS list airbrushed, brushed or rattlecans or something else? Looks like a big improvement from the earlier paint.
